You cannot leave Shanghai without trying a jianbing, the most delicious breakfast food in China, if not the entire planet. It’s that good. They are thin, savory Chinese crepes cooked by street vendors on a hotplate. Millet flour dough is poured and spread thin, then topped with salty soy bean paste (similar to hoisin), an egg, scallions, pickled vegetables, coriander and a slathering of chili sauce. Lastly, the vendor adds a deep fried wonton wrapper for extra crunch.
